The Miracle of the Incarnation

The boy from reformatusponthu on Vimeo.

I loved this little vimeo vid as a modern interpretation of the incarnation narrative. Enjoy. It reminds us that Jesus was born powerless in the margins of society. That Jesus was born a refuge, of a marginalised northern group in an oppressed people group in the Roman Empire, born outside of wedlock and with a threat against his life from the political powers. It is in this context that there wasn’t even a habitable place even to be born in. This is the miracle of the second person of the Trinity, the Redeemer, coming in total humility in the fragility of a new born child.
